The Zoey Renee Project
Trigger Warning – For mentions of infant death due to SIDS.
“I’ve have always thought I wouldn’t know what to do if we lost one of our kids and how strong parents must be just to keep going. Now walking this journey we see just how difficult it is. So here’s the challenge for this month. Make a change!!!”
Maranda Salters lost her sweet little girl, Zoey Renee, at six weeks. SIDS claimed Zoey’s life, which leads to a lot of unknowns and what-ifs. Maranda and her family decided to raise money to give Owlets to families in need. They already gave out 19 monitors and counting. If you visit the Facebook page here, you can see pictures of Owlet recipients. Maranda tries to deliver the Owlets in person whenever possible. She dubbed the cause the Zoey Renee Project.
“Instead of running to Starbucks everyday, 3 times a week or eating out every night how about taking that money and making a difference. We of course would love you to choose the ZRP but honestly just doing something will make a difference. We never thought this would be our journey, don’t think it will never be yours or someone you knows journey. MAKE A DIFFERENCE….”
Owlet co-founder, Jake Colvin, with Zoey’s parents, Maranda and Ty Salters.
Maranda is determined to make a difference in her corner of the world. She says about the project, “There is nothing that can bring her back to us so we have focused our intention into creating a legacy. . . . She isn’t just a statistic to us, we are going to make an impact in Zoey’s name, in the fight to stop SIDS from devastating another family. She was everything good in our world. We called her the caboose to our family so help us keep this train going in her honor.” Owlet was founded on the idea that anyone can change the world in some way. So we love to support projects like this. Owlet matches all donations to the Zoey Renee project dollar for dollar so that they can give away more Owlets.
